    I found 300g of chocolate too strong as I was using 70% cocoa so have reduced that done to 150g. My children love this mousse a real winner.  -  27 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Made it with strawberry jelly at the bottom hope it comes out good  -  23 Feb 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Very simple to make but light and fluffy. I used 70% chocolate and would perhaps use less next time  -  16 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
